(PresidentialWire.com)- In less than two years, Vice President Harris has seen an even dozen staffers say hasta la vista, Kami.
That is an astonishing number.
Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany says, “this is highly abnormal.”
Well, not for Kamala Harris. She has always had a virtual revolving door installed in her offices. One could do the research and probably find she has had several dogs run away in her lifetime.
Kamala Harris has a record of “toxic work culture” dating back to her stints as San Francisco’s district attorney (2004-2011), California’s attorney general (2011 to 2017), and U.S. Senator (2017 to 2021).
Sources have described her as unpredictable and demeaning.
Barbara O’Connor, a communications professor for California State University, whose office recruited dozens of interns for Harris while attorney general, stated that she had at least 20 interns come to her in tears over Harris’s behavior. They just felt they weren’t very valued in the harsh Harris office.
A former aide in the attorney general’s office said that staff members were always paranoid because no one knew when she would decide to snap at you. The environment was toxic, and she was very reactionary. If she called for information and you weren’t quick enough, you’d come back to the phone to find she had hung up on you.
Often she would snap, “what’s taking you so long?” and then hang up.
While on the vice presidential campaign trail, Harris would demand extremely trivial edits to the prepared text of a speech. She did this so often that staffers had to haul around battery-powered printers and quickly churn out note cards. The source said that it’s frustrating if you have to redo something for relatively trivial reasons.
Biden’s senior advisor, Cedric Richmond, dismissed the anonymous source’s criticism, saying it was simply a whisper campaign designed to sabotage her.
That would be somewhat believable if it happened in one office. The criticisms started decades ago and have followed Harris through multiple offices and positions. That’s a lot of sabotage.
McEnany believes the current crop of deserters may not be leaving because of Harris’s disposition but because staffers see a sinking ship, much like the Titanic, and they want to get out now before it hits the ocean floor. They are jumping off while they can perhaps secure a job at a major network or a big company.
